Making it easier to manage attention grabbing banners that are compelling and effective.

And it's open source!

Although spectacular home pages are truly special, sometimes you only need a great one.  Successful pages are those that either have compelling text with a Bootstrap Jumbotron or something more visual and attention grabbing with an animated Bootstrap Carousel.  With tight deadlines it is simple to create a compelling text based home page and then easily transition to a carousel without changing templates, it's easy to update them too.

Building on the strengths of Django, Mezzanine and Bootstrap, Mezzanine Bootstrap Banners offers a straightforward way of managing attention grabbing Bootstrap Carousels and compelling Bootstrap Jumbotrons for an easy to use Django Mezzanine based website.
